We’re sad to announce that the Nick of Time Band will not be continuing in 2022. We have so enjoyed our musical journey, but due to changing priorities in our personal lives we will put this amazing project to rest. Please know this change is effective immediately, and all shows previously booked for the year have been cancelled.
Thank you sincerely for your love and support – we’ve had a great time and we hope you did too!
